Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
The police would need evidence and proof as to who made these marks on your granddaughter. If she will not tell or speak to the police, then there is little they can do.
The drunk issue, they could look into as the adult would be responsible for the child in their care.
The same however could be said of the Childs parents and for allowing her to be out at that time obviously not under control.
If you have concerns regarding the safety and welfare your granddaughter it is something you can raise with social services.
Unfortunately, the police themselves have limited powers and resources and if they can find no evidence or the "victim" will nt speak to them their hands are pretty much tied.
If you can speak with your granddaughter and get her to open up and make a compliant, then the police can act.
Thank you for using Just Answer and for allowing me to assist you with your legal enquiry. I am pleased I was able to be of assistance.
